the same people who complain (everytime they are at the casino) about the machines not paying are back the next day. I see it all the time. Why even go back. I don't understand. If you are unhappy there, go to another one. It's just a place of entertainment for the commnunity. Well, IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ANYWAY.

I've been there several times and didn't get any service. I sure don't go expecting to win anything...I just go to donate my money.

I find it hilarious that some of you feel the need to blame black people for your problems (same song, different day!) No one is forcing you to put your hard earned money in a machine that promises you NOTHING in return!!! A casino is one of the biggest scams ever created for that simple fact! Are you all upset because African American women go to the casino with $5 bills, or because they seem to be winning when you lose your shirt, or because you cannot afford to play with $5 bills? If all you expect from a casino is a few watered down drinks and the sounds of other people winning, who do you think, my friends, are really the stupid ones? Have a great day!

Glad you said some of you because I for one am not complaining about anything other than the service...and as I said before I don't go expecting to win..I go to pass my time and enjoy getting away from the day to day crap that most people have to deal with. I donate to the cause. Cause I don't ever win crap.

how about video poker!!!!!!!! ive won 5 out the last 9 times which to some of you might not be alot but on a couple of occasions i did very well--put that to the losing 14 out of the last 16 times at the casino and u can see what i mean. i play the nickel video poker and bring a relatively small bank roll--considerably smaller than i did at the casino and i still won way more times. also i get more free drinks and i dont get harrassed for my i.d. even though im 39 and dont look under 21 evd cards me every time whats the deal with that---just saying again im never going to evd again that place sucks!!!!!!!!!!1

I think the problem is you see as convoy of black women going there around the 1st and the 15th of every month.Where do you think they are getting the money?

im a regular there and you can not win money at evangeline downs period!!!!!! worst run worst staffed no free drinks--the buffet should be called barffet---every site you read is b.s. random number generator my ass they turn on evd on monday evenings and thursday evenings--why is it EVERY machine is cold on a packed saturday(because they dont have enough weekend workers) so the casino definetely controls what sections hit at what time i guarantee it evd sucks the big one!!!!!!!!!!1
You really have no idea what you are talking about. I am in the slot machine manufacturing business and a person working at the casino CANNOT CONTROL what sections hit. The machine is its own computer and is set to hold a certain percentage of money put into it, and the rest gets paid back out. Also, the casino is highly regulated by the State Police and machines are tested and approved by a gaming compliance company before they are even placed on a casino floor. You should do research before casting blame......

Do they still bother you for the players card? I haven't been there in a while but they used to come around to bother you to buy one of those cards to track the money you play. That is just a botheration. I hate that they won't let me enjoy myself. They should hire more waitress instead of those card pushers. I quit going because of that.

I'd like to know what percentage they pay back from the slots. I've heard they are supposed to pay 92% back, but would rather pay the fine to the gaming commision instead because it is more profitable to them. You used to could go there and win sometimes, but in the last year or so they have really tightened up alot. My wife and I go there and very seldom ever win anything! And don't expect to win every time we walk through the doors,but I don't like losing 60 to 80 dollars in 1/2 an hour and not hit a thing during that time! I know that someone have to lose or they would not be in buisness long if everybody won everytime. But it seems there should be a balance to it. And right now seems the balance is way over on their side.
